Democrats got some bad news.
It came from one place the party could not afford.
Now this key Joe Biden ally’s one word confession set Democrats up for one giant defeat.
Michigan is undergoing the worst coronavirus outbreak in the nation right now.
The virus is raging across Michigan despite the fact that Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer imposed one of the strictest lockdowns and mask mandates in America.
Whitmer even went so far as to demand residents not travel for “spring break” to places like Florida that opened their economy last year and never imposed a mask mandate.
But now Whitmer is the latest Democrat governor caught breaking her own lockdown rules.
Michigan Information & Research Service News broke a bombshell that one month after telling her residents not to travel to states like Florida, Whitmer got caught jetting off to the Sunshine State.
Whitmer spokesman Bobby Leddy confirmed the trip to the Detroit News,
“The governor did not go on spring break, and she has not left the state in over a month,” Leddy stated. “In the past six months, she has left the state three times, once for the inauguration, once to assist her elderly father who is battling a chronic illness, and once to visit with Michigan’s National Guard troops.
“All trips were very brief, two full days or less, closely followed public health guidelines, and were made when Michigan’s daily positivity rate was in the low single digits.” Leddy added.
In an interview with the Washington Post Whitmer whined that it was “maddening” that her critics expected her to live up to her own rules.
“It’s maddening,” Whitmer ranted, “A lot of these same people would accuse me of not having family values if I didn’t show up when a family member needed some help.”
Whitmer seemed to believe that because her trip was not “spring break” that it was ok she did not follow the rules she insisted other Michiganders follow.
“It was certainly not spring break,” Whitmer whined. “I was doing both my job as governor from a distance and being that of a daughter who was helping out a parent who needed a little help.”
Michigan Republicans were not swayed, and hammered Whitmer for her double standard.
“This is about hypocrisy,” State Senator Jim Runestad declared “The whole thing is not about her visiting her father. It is about the hypocrisy.”
Whitmer’s status as the governor of one of the key swing states on the map as well as her repeated false and misleading attacks against Donald Trump during the coronavirus pandemic makes her the top Republican target for defeat in gubernatorial elections next year.
